Staff Pick

“A clever piece!”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member - chrish@justflutes.com
Despite the high price of this short piece I thought it deserved a mention simply because it is very clever and works well. Pearce manages to combine the Flight of the Bumblebee with short excerpts from 10 other well known themes including the Minute Waltz, Melody in F and Eine Kleine Nachtmusik. It makes for a challenging workout for all the players and it has the added bonus of being able to be performed by 6 C flutes.

Our Description

This is the familiar theme with the surprising addition of the themes of ten other familiar classical pieces interspersed in unexpected ways. Great fun!

  • Moment Musical (Schubert)
